How appropriate that former starlet Anouska Hempel - I shall never forget her as Lust in the film, The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins - should be returning to her show-business roots now that she has turned Minimalist designer (not to mention hotelier). Her latest project is to revamp the Manhattan apartment of the diminutive magician David Copperfield, famous for his illusions which can make the past disappear! On a rather more serious note, I hear David Chipperfield is also at work in Manhattan - on two hotels for entrepreneur Brian McNally, ex-partner of Ian Schrager (who is busy with hotels in London). Chippo is also doing a tower hotel for the same client in Miami's Art Deco quarter, while pondering what will almost certainly be his most important cultural project, rebuilding/ rethinking the Neues Museum in Berlin.
